Dutch douchebags fall for typical nigger bullshit

The Hague, Netherlands – The descendants of an African chief who was hanged and decapitated by a Dutch general 171 years ago reluctantly accepted the return of his severed head, still angry even as the Dutch tried to right a historic wrong.


The head of King Badu Bonsu II was discovered last year in a jar of formaldehyde gathering dust in the anatomical collection of the Leiden University Medical Center.

The Dutch government agreed to Ghanaian demands that the relic be returned.

On Thursday, members of the king's Ahanta tribe, dressed in dark robes and wearing red sashes, took part in the hand-over ceremony, honoring his spirit by toasting with Dutch gin and then sprinkling the drink over the floor at the Dutch Foreign Ministry.



But descendants of the chief said they were not consoled. "I am hurt, angry. My grandfather has been killed," said Joseph Jones Amoah, the great, great grandson of the chief.

The chief's head was stored elsewhere at the ministry and was not displayed during the ceremony. It is expected to be flown with the tribe members back to Ghana on Friday.

Tribal elders said after the hand-over that they were also angry because they had been sent by their current chief only to identify the head, not retrieve it. Taking it back without first reporting to the chief would be a breach of protocol, they said.

"We, the Ahanta, are not happy at all," said Nana Etsin Kofi II.

The head was taken by Maj. Gen. Jan Verveer in 1838 in retaliation for Bonsu's killing of two Dutch emissaries, whose heads were displayed as trophies on Bonsu's throne, said Arthur Japin, a Dutch author who discovered the king's head when he was working on a historical novel.

The elders demanded the Dutch government provide aid to their tribe to appease the slain chief.



Nana Kwekwe Darko III, who tipped the gin on the floor in a Ghanaian tradition of respect for the dead, dabbed tears from his eyes afterward and said he wanted the Dutch to build schools and hospitals for his people.

Ministry spokesman Bart Rijs said that 10 tribal chiefs who came from Ghana had agreed before the ceremony to take the head home. The official transfer was between the two countries' governments, he said.

Foreign Minister Maxime Verhagen used the ceremony to apologize for Dutch involvement in the slave trade. Ghana, then known as Gold Coast, was a base for Dutch slave traders.

"We are also here because of our mutual desire to lay to rest episodes in ... history that were unfortunate and shameful," Verhagen grovelled. "Our common past also includes the infamous slave trade, which our traders engaged in and sustained and which inflicted so much harm on so many people in so many parts of the world."

Ghana has lobbied for the head's return since it was discovered.

"Without burial of the head, the deceased will be hunted in the afterlife. He's incomplete," Eric Odoi-Anim, a Ghanaian diplomat in the Netherlands said after the discovery. "It's also a stigma on his clan, on his kinsmen, and him being a (high-ranking) chief — this is even more serious."

It was unclear what would become of it once it reaches Ghana. Berima Asamoah Kofi IV, a traditional chief who now lives in the Netherlands, said the Ahanta chief would ultimately decide its fate.

"Whatever he says, we are going to do," he told The Associated Press.

"and said he wanted the Dutch to build schools and hospitals for his people."

TKB - of course they want something from the Dutch. But what should the Dutch demand from the Ghanians for Bonsu's killing of two Dutch emissaries, and displaying thier heads as trophies on his throne???

@Anon: Because the savages can't be held accountable for their behaviour, but whites always are.

A lot of the Dutch are sanctimonious douchebags who have an armchair opinion on anything and everything. Being Dutch myself but having lived in SA all my life, I laugh myself silly at these PC apologists.

If I were living in Holland (god forbid) I would have stuck the head on a pole in my handkerchief sized garden to warn the black tsotsi's off. Holland is crawling with black Surinamese thugs that the Dutch can't throw out because they have dual citizenship of Suriname and Holland. Not to mention "asylum seekers" from African countries, including South Africa! Guess where the woman who was "clearly aroused" by JZ's advances is living? In Holland. Why should JZ's ex paramours be Holland's problem?

This case of the Dutch tossing an ancient nigger skull back at Africa sets an interesting precedent. I wish they'd toss ALL nigger carcasses back at Africa.

@Dachshund
LOL!
There's a lesson in all of this: Next time you find a decapitated African king's head in a jar on a shelf in your cupboard - just flush it down the loo.

@Dachsie:

Now tell me, having lived in SA all your life, why do you still call yourself DUTCH?

Do you think that your (often funny) articles are really changing ANYTHING to today's SA?

Doberman said...

@ else, I won't speak for Dach because she can handle herself but on your second point, what she and we do here is more than you do by ignoring the problem of crime and mismanagement of our country.

If our efforts results in ONE life saved through the AWARENESS we bring then that's one life we saved more than you. Geddit? Not too complicated?

We have people in SA being fed horseshit by the mainstream media. People who think crime is exaggerated. We beg to differ of course because 50+ murders a day is simply not "exaggeration", not for the victims and their loved ones.

Now we can all retreat into our respective holes and ignore the problem or we can try to do something UNSELFISH to help our fellow countrymen, black and white.

That's what we are doing. You can thank us later.

@Else, do you really think your comment is changing anything about the way we see things, on this site? Hahahaha. Get real.

Funny how Blacks always want something for the wrongs of the past, be it building schools / hospitals for them etc, they always want something!! The great great grand son of the "murdered" chief didn't even know him, but he is ANGRY and SAD!!! Can you imagine if the AFRIKANER people go to the ZULU king and ask him to "pay" for what Dingane and Shaka did to us in the past, how they murdered the babies of the afrikaner people and betrayed them (Piet Retief)?? It's also very funny that we whites are made to pay for slavery / oppression etc, but we were not the ones that started this, imagine a white man claim for slavery of his people back in the 1700 - 1800, we would be labeled racist and excluded from society!! The world really needs to wake up and stop allowing this shit to happen. Black will never evolve / develop if the white man always have to give them a "helping" hand and keep on paying their way in live!! Liberals are the cause of AFRICAN poverty and issues in that they do not allow these blacks people to develop on their own, that is if they can develop to begin with!!!

Funny, this guy would've known NOTHING about his ancestors if whitey hadn't gone and written it down!
Some gratitude. And the Dutchies even kept the head for him!

@ FMCLAW777, very astute comments.
